“He’ll probably (get) the Grand Master the fastest of any dog that I’ve trained,” Kozicki said. “Usually it’s over a year and a half. He’s been working on it for three months.” #life  
Scooter is less interested in fetching tennis balls in the backyard than your average dog. Instead, he’s chasing down the coveted title of Grand Master. The title is the highest award in Canada for obedience show dogs. If Scooter claims the award, he’ll be the fourth trained by his owner, Lee Kozicki, to earn it.

Valerie Ewenin is proud that her image will help spread awareness of what the survivors of residential schools in Canada endured. "I think it's important because a lot of people don't really know what happened," Ewenin, who was at the Muskowekwan Indian Residential School from 1965 to 1971.

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
